For the first time in the 26 year history of Ohioans to Stop Executions, you have a real opportunity to change Ohio’s laws in ways that lead to fewer executions, and put us on the path to ending the death penalty in our state.
Your support is helping OTSE on the ground and in the media with leading Voices of Experience in Cincinnati this Saturday, Columbus on September 30, and Springfield October 2. The details of these and other upcoming events are on the OTSE Calendar, here.
The Voices of Experience include former death penalty supporters like former Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro, former Directors of the Ohio Department of Correction and Rehabilitation Reginald Wilkinson and Terry Collins, and death row survivor Joe D’Ambrosio.
And you. Your Voice of Experience is vital too. Without you, a member of Ohioans to Stop Executions, OTSE will not be successful. Everything you and I do this fall sets the stage for legislative action to implement the Task Force recommendations to make Ohio’s death penalty applied more fairly and used less often.
You can help bring speakers to your community. You can organize and mobilize your friends, family and colleagues to pressure your legislators to give the Task Force recommendations a fair hearing and then implement them. And you can help OTSE fund this work.
Two of your fellow members of Ohioans to Stop Executions feel so strongly about the importance of our work that they stepped forward to match every donation received by OTSE up to $10,000! Your generous help today helps OTSE continue our work into next year’s legislative session. And we need it today. Whether you can give, $5 or $5,000 – or anything in between, remember that your donation will be matched until we raise $10,000.

PS: I can’t emphasize this point enough, so I will say it again. Two of your fellow OTSE members have pledged to match the next $10,000 we receive in donations. That means every dollar you give to OTSE actually means $2 to our cause. Click here to double your dollars today!
